Some of you know the story of Christmas(Chris) and Easter (Essie) and some don't but for those of you that have been following this saga of our adopted goose and his new little companion I have good news. Essie has come of age!!! (The are both Toulouse) Essie finally went into the creek. It was by accident but she did fine. For 4 days now she has been going down and watching Chris swim but she would sit on the bottom step of "Jordan's steps" (that a whole other family story) and just sit there. This evening she was on the bottom step trying to get a drink and she fell in!!! She looked at me and looked at Chris and took off after him. He took her all over the creek showing her all his favorite places and then they finally came out and I put them to bed for the night. I don't think we'll be able to keep her out of it now. The pictures aren't the greatest because I didn't have time to focus or set the camera.
